    A little idea i had before i built the cabby

    Before i bought my cabby at the end of last year, i was contemplating another idea that we were so close to going ahead with.

    Sadly at the time i couldn't source the right donor car for the right money, we did the homework into what parts we would use, got prices for parts and labour, then the cabby came up so i bought that instead. That was where this project stopped.

    It would have been awesome, but at the moment it is purely a photoshop.

    Let me know your thoughts.

    3dr GSi Astra Estate, converted from mk4 5dr estate
    Z20LET
    18" Porsche, Mercedes, Carlsson wheels
    3dr hatch doors
    Moved B pillars
    Custom rear 1/4s
    etc...

    Here's a few colour options.

    Could have been interesting! Not a fan of the wheels though tbh. Would be better with some in White or Diamond cut.

    Could work well.

    Some of the colours work really well.

    Can you try the same with some black opc wheels?
